Where should you not go, and why?

You know where this place is, don't you?
When I first saw this tram I was quite surprised as the Chinese name was right on the first car. It took me a few attempts to take this picture, as I guess there is only one like this and I am not the kind who has a camera in hand ready to take pictures all the time. As far as I know there are different Chinese versions of the city's name. But if this name is good enough for the city it is good enough for me. (But I can't explain why I feel differently about Seoul's Chinese name.)
An irrelevant question - why do Asian (Japanese, Hong Kong, Taiwan) young people (or younger people) like to take pictures of the food they order with sophisticated big cameras in restaurants? Is it just to show off their cameras?
A fine bit of marketing blarney.
1) What two things would an Irishman not joke about?
2) What two things does the company want to bring to the young of Taiwan?
3) Which former US Vice-President am I emulating?
Which of these services might you expect to get a Mickey Mouse service from? And where (you might need to strain the eyes a bit) might you expect them to get a lot of their customers from?
This is not relevant to the pictures. I could not find my university when I arrived at the University train station. I saw a bus terminus, a Hyatt hotel next to a brand new building but I could not see Chung Chi College or the New Asia and United water towers. Of course soon I found out that I had exited on the other side of the station. I had not been there for over a decade and I no longer know the place. Sigh.
2) What does the establishment request you do not do in order to avoid disorder?
3) I'm not even sure this is possible, but - find a picture of the restaurant and perhaps even dishes . . .
Thanks to Joel for the photo . . .
1) What did I have for lunch?
2) What kind of restaurant was this?
3) You'll need to resort to the Internet for this one, but can anyone name the restaurant?
Everyone who gets it right receives pictures of the meal to print out and keep.
1) What film did we watch? Summarize the plot and explain for those of us who got confused.
2) Were these full price tickets?
3) Using a subway map and www.bjbus.com, plan a route home to the east gate of Tsinghua University.
See if you can understand what's in the photo.
Here is a 2004 thread on the artist -> Controversial and Billionaire painter
2) Who's selling it?
3) What will it cost?
4) Where can you go to find out more?
5) Wouldn't one sign have done?
And in case I forget to come back and tell you, they were . . .
Apologies, as usual, for the quality.
Sorry also for the quality of this one - mobile phone photo taken through the sliding doors of a subway. Should be legible, although I'll help you out with the last character - it's the traditional version of 价.
Your question - what brand is being advertised?
1) What's for sale
2) Where do they come from?
3) What price are they for sale at?
4) Where should you go to make a purchase? Not sure I would have got this one easily without knowing the area.
Here's a hand-scribbled ad stuck up on a window near my local breakfast emporium (ok, McDonald's. Best value coffee in Beijing, I maintain). Rather than just ask you a bunch of questions though, I'm hereby challenging you to transcribe or translate the entire ad. If you can't do it all just do the bits you can.
2) What should you not do?
3) What is there a danger of if you do?
